Some of the most successful tweets and other bits of internet got that way simply because they express something we’re all delighted to realize that other people experience too. “Thank God,” we think, “I’m not the only one.” Then we share it with everyone we know, and they share it, similarly relieved, and a new liberation for some tiny experience is begun.
Which is all kind of a high-minded way of saying observational comedy is funny.
Here are 14 observations that are simply too relatable to ignore.
14. King of the hill
Y’all ever try to breathe quieter while walking up a hill so bystanders don’t hear you fighting for your life

12. Lit-erary devices
I don’t know what’s ironic anymore.
How slang spreads:
– hears slang for first time
– hate on it
– use it ironically
– can't stop using it
– it's lit fam

11. Highway hypnosis
It’s kind of a wonder most of us are still alive.

6. Courtesy calls
What kind of psychopath ever turns their ringer on?

5. Raise your hand
OK so, author’s note here, I do this all the time and legitimately though I was alone till now.

4. Professional procrastinator
There’s always tomorrow.
3. Bathroom etiquette
How dare someone do the thing I might also someday do.
2. Secret shame
They say there’s no such thing as a dumb question. They lie.
1. Completely unnecessary
We need to just get rid of this word.
How many of those felt like they hit too close to home? For me it was a solid 14 out of 14. I think that means I win?
